I should listen to my own advice sometimes.
Went back toHebrides, told that gull Trev wanted him to face into the image, tidied up some debris and here he is back again. Don't mean to be boring but I decided I liked this gull who'd never been shown in public before.
Hope you all had a laugh at yesterday's birthday card for mikbee.
I enjoyed creating it - it appealed to my wicked side.Wink

Plenty of room in front of him which makes for a better composition and a great reflection. - gary

The presence of the reflection in the wet sand just makes the image, Kate.

Hmmm---glad to hear you have a wicked side Kate.
There is hope for me yet getting you and the girls going a night out with your sussies on.
But I suppose there is as much chance that happening,as me going all the way to the Hebrides for a pint !!

Was going to say "taking centre stage," but the positioning is much better being "enter left."Smile
